So I decided to start a new thread, since for some reason, the pictures on the old thread all stopped appearing.  That thread was pretty cluttered anyway.

How long do you actually spend on the polished ones? And what grit do you go down to? (I go down to 2,000)

Those all look great.  Have you ever done a mask where only part of it is mirror-polished?  e.g. the look of the Werrd 86400?  Or would that be a completely different technique?  I assume the 86400 is just machined but a polished ring in the cup of a Valor or Irony JP would be sweet.
